The shooting occurred Sunday night around 10 p.m. when a lone gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire onto a crowd near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

The victims were in a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. 

According to Metro Police, a hail of bullets rang out from the 32-floor of Mandalay Bay down unto the crowd below.  For 10 minutes, Paddock sprayed hundreds of bullets into the crowd about a quarter mile away.

A large fuel tank at nearby McCarran International Airport was hit by two bullets, one penetrating the outer shell, officials said on the airport's Facebook page.

But there never was any danger, officials said.

"There is almost zero likelihood gunfire damage could trigger a fire or explosion at a commercial fuel storage facility," the Facebook post said.

Along with the 58 killed, nearly 500 others were injured.
